Fenwick Farm matriarch Maryellen McAuliffe McEwan passed away on Sept. 29 at her home in Camden, SC. The longtime Thoroughbred owner/breeder/trainer was 100 years old.

The Canada native and her husband Fred built Fenwick Farm, now operating as Fenwick Equestrian, located in Camden in the 1970s. Some of the more notable names raised and/or trained at the facility, now run by McEwan's children Fred and Wilhelmina, include Grade I/Group 1 winners Caressing (Honour and Glory), Arewehavingfunyet (Big Brown), Stephen Got Even (A.P. Indy) and Femme Elite (Northjet {Ire}).

A private mass will be held at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church in Camden, SC, and an inurnement will follow in Canada with her parents.
